This week we were delighted to try a new product which has only just been released – the Sainsbury’s BBQ Jackfruit ready meal that everyone has been talking about. We LOVE jackfruit (as you may guess from our previous reviews), so we were really happy to try this one out.
This week, we’re chatting about the Strong Roots kale and quinoa burgers. We picked them up in our local Waitrose, but we hear tell that they are also available in Tesco and beyond.
Here’s what they have to say about their product:
Our Kale and Quinoa Burgers are a vegan friendly, low sugar and a low saturated fat alternative for your meals. With its crisp quinoa crust, mixed vegetables and no-artificial flavours, they bake to a tasty and crisp burger. They are suitable for a variety of uses such as a starter, a side or simply as a burger in a bun!
• Low saturated fat
• Low sugar
• Vegan friendly
It’s hard to believe we’ve never covered the Linda McCartney Mozzarella Burger before. After all, we’ve been eating it for years. Somehow, however, this one slipped through the net. We’re changing that today, with a look at this freezer option and what you can expect from it.
It’s time for a new feature: a battle of the brands, with vegan ribs in the spotlight. We’ve been trying vegan ribs for a while now and have come to find two of the best – but how do they match up, and which is better? Let’s find out…
This week we decided to give Fry’s a try. Fry’s isn’t available in our local supermarket but we did find a wide range at Holland and Barrett, of which these Fry’s meat free traditional burgers were one.
You cook them by frying, which makes sense given the name. We popped them into a pan with some FryLight and gave them a try, served up with some Quorn bacon and rice for an impromptu weeknight meal that was quick and easy to make.
Recently we received a complimentary Cheese Posties delivery for review, and we’re itching to share that experience with you. You’ve heard of box subscriptions in almost every category that you can think of, but this one is super interesting – it’s a cheese toastie delivered to you at regular intervals so you can make your own with fancy ingredients and unique flavours. This is gourmet DIY toasted sandwich goodness all delivered in a quirky package – and did we mention their name is just about the best pun ever?
We are thrilled this week to be reviewing Bad Brownies, after we had some of their delicious treats sent out to us as a sample. “They must be lying,” was the first thing J said when we opened up the package and took our first bite. “There’s no way that’s vegan.”
These lemon and pepper chicken style burgers from Asda seemed kind of intriguing when we saw them in the frozen section, so we decided to give them a go. They don’t look hugely exciting – after all, plenty of other brands produce this kind of burger – but we thought, who knows? These could be the best of the bunch, and we won’t know until we give them a try.
We’ve got a couple of meat-free substitutes to review this week: Cheatin’ Pepperoni Style Slices and GranoVita Meat-Free Pepperoni. I’m in a bit of a unique position compared to many vegetarians because of the fact that I’ve never eaten either of those foods in their true form, which makes it a bit interesting when it comes to reviewing them.
These Goodlife mushroom and spinach kievs are next on our list, and you could have predicted it if you read last week’s post – as we ate them at the same time as the Fishless Fingers that we tried!
The kievs certainly live up to their name as they are very, very garlicky! That’s a plus point for us as we love garlic but they could be a little too strong for others. There’s a base of quorn underneath the breadcrumbs, which is then coated in a very strong sauce. The mushroom flavour isn’t as strong, and in fact I would say that it is almost lost in the garlic.
